Camden Festival ’71

Here’s one I haven’t come across before ~ thanks to the Quintessence Chronology for bringing it to our attention. Help Yourself supporting Deep Purple on Friday 30th April 1971 at The Roundhouse. Does anyone remember this gig taking place?

The website also lists a gig on 1st October that same year, Help Yourself supporting Quintessence at Brunel University in Uxbridge.

All of which reminds us that we really should attempt to catalogue every gig that Help Yourself ever played. That surely can’t be too difficult… can it?

Sadly, the old form that was on this website was proving to be rather problematic. We became aware that quite a few messages were being sent that weren't being received ~ so we've resorted to using a simple email address for the time being. Many apologies if you sent me a message and I didn't reply. I urge you to try again! Send your email to: hello(at)


On the Road / On Air is a new box set that document’s Man’s BBC sessions between 1972 and 1983. There’s some great music here, including a BBC Radio 1 session that features Malc from 1974! Visit the Cherry Red website for more info.


Putting together this website has certainly been a 'learning curve' ~ but I think we're getting there. For a more interactive experience visit the Malcolm Morley Facebook page and the fledgling Twitter account (@bewaretheshadow). If all goes well, who knows, we may even consider a YouTube channel.
